To commemorate World Water Day 2017, West Monroe Partners will convene a diverse group of industry leaders to discuss the risks posed to businesses because of water scarcity, quality and flooding.
Today’s water crisis gives rise to a complex set of issues for companies to manage: from securing and preserving access to sufficient quantities of high quality water and limiting production disruptions, to meeting ever-more stringent wastewater discharge standards and being seen as responsible partners in collectively managing water as a shared resource.
